Who can join Cubs?
Cubs is open to boys and girls aged 8 to 10 years of age.
When do Cubs meet?
1st Bedworth has three Cub Packs:
- Mondays, 6.30pm to 8.00pm – Mein Cubs
- Tuesdays, 7.00pm to 8.30pm – Hopkins Cubs
- Thursdays, 7.00pm to 8.30pm – Walton Cubs
Occasionally there are optional activities on other evenings and at weekends.
How much does Cubs cost?
We charge a weekly membership subscription fee of £2.50 per week. This membership fee covers activity insurance, programme materials, badges and also goes towards the heating, lighting and maintenance of the building. It is still payable even if a member does not attend a Pack Night.
Please also be aware that activities outside of the section meeting may be at extra cost.
What do Cubs do?
Cub Scouts have a lot of fun, learn lots of new things and take part in adventurous activities. They have the chance to gain badges and awards in recognition of the effort made by each youngster at their own level of development and understanding. The programme includes a wide selection of activities with the emphasis on the outdoors.
All of our meetings are ran by trained and experienced leaders who are supported by a team of skills instructors and helpers. Also, all of our Adult Volunteers are vetted by an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
What do Cubs wear?
As with the other sections of 1st Bedworth, Cubs wear a uniform to their pack night and to some other activities:
- A smart green coloured sweatshirt
- Royal blue necka’
- Black, navy blue or dark grey trousers or shorts
- Black, navy blue, or dark grey socks
- Black boots or shoes.
The sweatshirt is available from us and costs £14.50. Their necka’ is presented free when the Cub is invested. Most Cubs wear their school trousers and shoes with their uniform.
